Nikon recently announced the introduction of the professional digital SLR, Nikon D3. Incorporating the large CMOS image sensor developed by Nikon, the D3 features 12.1 effective megapixels and a sensitivity range from ISO 200 to 6,400 at normal setting.
The D3 will enable continuous shooting at approximately 9 frames per second for 12.1 megapixel images. The image sensor of the D3 is a CMOS sensor developed by Nikon with a sensing area of 36.9 x 23.9 mm that is compliant with the area of 35 mm film. For this Nikon will use the term “FX format” for the image format of 35 mm equivalent Nikon digital SLR cameras.
The D3 is equipped with Nikon’s Multi-CAM 3500FX autofocus sensor module featuring 51 AF points. 15 cross-type sensors located in the center provide subject detection capability with lens apertures as small as f/5.6. 51 AF points can be utilized in various focus area modes selected according to subject condition.
The D3 also features the ‘Liveview’ function that enables shooting while confirming subjects in the LCD monitor.
The WT-4 supports wired LAN (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX) and wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11b/g, 11a), and incorporates thumbnail mode as a new function. It realizes wireless connection of cameras with a PC, enabling thumbnail display of images taken with up to five of them and downloading of images selected. Also, by using Camera Control Pro 2 (optional), wireless remote view/control shooting is made possible with the D3’s Liveview function.
